My P990i won't boot

Hi, there! I got the same problem too. my P990i won't reboot! I turned it off last night because I can't type on the message box but when I turned it back on, it just started to boot up with the normal loading bar and halfway through its rebooting process, it rebooted again. and it does that over and over again. I've done it a few times, it's still the same. I even removed the battery, the memory card, and even my sim card but it's not helping. I am so worried. I just installed a Psiloc Japanese language software last saturday but I uninstalled it on monday. And I just realized last night that I couldn't type any letter at all on the message box after the uninstallation thats why i rebooted my phone. So right now, I can't use it anymore because it won't turn on! Anyway, if you do get any feedback from anyone on how to solve this kind of problem. Or, if you'll figure out how to troubleshoot it,please let me know too. I would appreciate it very much. You may send me an email at Thanks.

I got the same problem. What I did is is to master reset the phone through its control panel. It worked! Before you do it, be sure to back up your phonebook, files, etc.

P990i Culd not be conneced tp PC

Now, the likelihood is it is NOT your phone(s). Just try connecting it to your PC as normal. If you get the same problem, turn the PC off, disconnect all your gear and turn your computer off AT THE MAINS. Leave for HALF AN HOUR, this takes all the discharge away from the motherboard. Boot everything back up, and connect your phone. You shouldn''t get any problems

reset your phone to factory default by executing master clear,if asking a code just put 0000 or 000000,or if you have set your security code use it,then wait your phone until rebooting is finish.if still you cannot open your inbox you must upgrade your firmware.thats all....

Software Update not working on my Sony P990I

search for usb drivers and if it still doesn't work you have to go to service with it ( they have "the magic box" - setools 3). if your phone works good JUST DON'T UPGRADE ! p990i has a very bad software even in the last version and they quited making new software for this phone.
